Hi all, fairly new to WP and in love! :) So much so I moved off my wordpress.com hosted (free) blog onto a new domain of my own, so I could have all the goody fun with managing/controlling my own install of WP. Here's my problem: on wordpress.com, the Rubric theme is somehow 2.0-ready, widgets and all. But the "in-the-wild" Rubric theme is only 1.5-ready, and doesn't support widgets. Can anyone point me in the right direction here?
Do I have to redo the work someone else did of getting Rubric widget-friendly? Is it hard (you can see on my blog at ransomedhome.com that I'm not an experienced coder)? Is there a way to get the updated theme from the wordpress.com guys?
I've searched everywhere, and am not even sure where to leave comments/requests, so if you have the time to help I'd really appreciate it. Thanks for taking the time to read my lengthy request. :)
